Organic Vegetable Glycerine / Glycerin / Glycerol (all 3 scientific terms are interchangeable and refer to the same ingredient) is a certified ToxicFree® humectant that keeps toothpaste polish moist, and adds a pleasant sweet flavor. Essanté Organics obtains all glycerine from non-GMO vegetable sources, versus the more common sourcing practice from animal by-products. Clinical studies show vegetable glycerine is soluble in water and does not cause demineralization of the teeth as bleaching agents do (demineralization occurs when the pH balance of plaque is lowered). Glycerine is not acidic it is base, and an excellent ingredient choice clinically proven to help improve overly sensitive teeth.

Sorbitol is a certified ToxicFree®, non-GMO, slow-metabolizing glucose derived from fruit or seaweed. It adds a healthy sweetness and sustains a good pH balance in the mouth. It does not lower the pH of plaque like sugar, which causes the demineralization of tooth enamel.
Organic Peppermint Oil Essanté Organics begins with fresh, organic mint leaves and applies a proprietary triple distillation process.

Organic Xanthan Gum is a natural gum plant thickener that thickens Essanté Organics toothpaste and helps keep Sparkle Toothpaste Polish moist for a 2-year shelf life.
Organic Stevia is an unrefined powder Essanté Organics derives from dried, organic, green stevia leaves. It is an extremely useful herb in oral hygiene formulations. Essanté Organics uses grade A organic stevia, due to its highly effective antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and because it does not have an aftertaste as lower grade stevia does. Research shows organic stevia can stopdental decay and bleeding gums when used for an extended period of time, primarily due to its capability to kill bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum diseases. Tooth decay and gum diseases are the two most common problems faced by diabetics. The organic stevia in Sparkle Toothpaste Polish supports blood sugar levels. It provides a zero-calorie sweetness too. Medidart® shares organic stevia’s vast health benefits including its ability to support: blood sugar, weight management, blood pressure, oral health, bone health, skin health and more. These benefits go a long way in motivating some of us to brush with Essanté Organics Sparkle Toothpaste Polish more than the average 2 times per day. In addition, Essanté Organics selects and uses the finest quality organic stevia on earth.
Decyl Glucoside is a pure, certified ToxicFree® coconut derived glucose cleanser that creates a foam which traps Essanté Organics Sparkle Toothpaste Polish onto the gums and teeth long enough to provide powerful antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory actions.
